About the role

A full recruitment pack accompanies this introductory advert.


What are we looking for?

We are seeking someone who can add value to our Board and the strategic and operational direction of Active Norfolk. We are very keen to speak to anyone with expertise in fundraising (especially VCSE), children & young people (including education) or active environments (including planning & policy). These are areas we have identified as being organisationally important and requiring strategic support from our Board.

Overall, an interest in physical activity, reducing inequalities, and widening sport and physical activity opportunities across Norfolk is ideal but not essential. Active Norfolk Board NEDs will provide strategic leadership, advocacy and management accountability for the Active Partnership and will, along with the Chair act as ’champions’ within their various spheres of influence, opening doors, changing thinking and creating links.

We believe we have a strong Board that care passionately about the cause, but we can always do better. Could you be the right person to help us do that? This could be your first Board role, or you might be highly experienced at Board level – it doesn’t matter. As long as you can bring your drive to make a difference and influence our direction positively then that is what we are looking for.

Alongside this, Board NEDs will also:

• Support the overall direction of the work of Active Norfolk, setting targets and agreeing a business plan

• Attend Board meetings, bringing together a diverse range of interests to work together on a common agenda

• Potentially represent the Board at internal and external events and drive partnerships and engagement as required

About Active Norfolk

At Active Norfolk our mission is to Get Norfolk Moving. We aim to ensure that being active is just something that the people of Norfolk do. The focus of our work is towards those who suffer most from inequalities in society as they often face the most barriers to being active, but can benefit the most. We work closely with a wide range of partners to ensure that systems and places have access to opportunities to embed the power of physical activity in to their communities and work.
